About this listing
This is one of my favorite place on earth.
The kitchen area has a microwave, fridge, and electric range. Perfect for breakfast and easy dining!

The Venice Canals are right around the corner for a romantic and beautiful experience. Abbot Kinney Blvd is the hottest street in Los Angeles where you can find great food and shopping.

Our stay here was fantastic. The place was just as described and better value and quality than we would have got in a hotel in the same area. The locations spot on for Abbott Kinney and the beach so having towels and chairs to use was great. The place also had all the travel essentials in case you had forgotten things which was a really nice touch. Laurence kindly let us check out an hour later which meant we got to enjoy the area a bit longer before our flight. Highly recommend.
We really enjoyed staying at this cozy apartment in Venice. It is perfectly located near the beach and Abbot Kinney. Laurence is a great host! Excellent communication and useful tips. Highly recommended!
My husband and I had a fantastic stay at this apartment. It was exactly as advertised - a cute studio with everything you need for a short stay. We loved the convenient location which was walking distance to the shops and beach. The bikes were a great bonus and we loved riding along the beach path.
Laurence was a great host, the process for gaining access to the studio was very easy with the access codes. There were a few nice touches like toiletries and some snacks which made this stay extra special. I would highly recommend this host and listing to others.
Pleasant and homely studio located a stones throw from Venice beach front. We had a pleasant stay and enjoyed our time at this property. We stayed as a family of three with a small baby. The apartment is well equipped and has everything you would need for a short stay. The only negative side to our stay was that the walls are very thin with noise from adjoining apartments being heard late into the night. If someone fancies a shower at 3am you may aswell be in it with them as the water pipes are right beside where your head is lying. apart from that would likely return to this area.
This apartment is in a great location close to the beach and Venice canals. Everything inside was clean and nicely decorated. The space is a little small for two people, but would be more than fine for one. Also, it is on a somewhat busy street, so if you are sensitive to street traffic it can get a little noisy in the morning.
This place was great! Great location, 2 blocks from Abbott Kinney, 3 blocks from the beach! The place had everything we needed and then some. Our host was there immediately if we needed him (however no problems arose, so we did not need to contact him throughout the whole trip) he was even able to make the studio available at an earlier time due to an early flight. I highly recommend staying here or at least staying at one of his residences. I know I will certainly stay at one of his places again next time I travel here. If I had to say ONE negative thing (and this is really being picky) it would just be that the floors are really thin, so every movement the person above you makes, you can hear. But you're not even in the place long enough to notice because you are out and about enjoying the beautiful area and everything Venice has to offer!
Perfect condo, perfect location very central ( walking distance to the canals, beach, abbot kinney blv restaurants and cafes. Everything perfectly organized :))))and very welcoming ( lots of nice details):)))) very clean , nice bed with good quality bed sheets ( rather unusual in the states) I stayed at Laurences place with my daughter, and would always go back there again.
Thank you Laurence
